It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Oh Tony, We loved you

RIP Anthony
Too many of our best and brightest commit suicide .. Life should be enjoyed, most of the time at least.
There is pretty much nothing that is worse than Death ..
If you have a friend or family member who concerns you with their depression, if they speak of death or suicide or not wanting to live, get them to a doctor .. seek help... and don't leave them alone. Keep them company, even if they don't want it.
Sadly, I know what I am talking about.

  1. Today is the first day in a while I've been able to leave a comment. Dear Anthony Bourdain, and darling Kate Spade - how tragic :( I've just really been thrown by this. I've had some VERY dark days when I didn't want to get out bed, lost a lot of weight, and suffered from anxiety and depression that lasted quite a while, yet I never once contemplated suicide. So it makes me wonder, what is the difference between those who do and those who don't? The increases in the rates are truly frightening :( I do know that I had 5(!) wonderful people who lived in different states who each called me every single day for months (I was living alone in the country and not working so was quite isolated) and allowed me to talk and cry about the same things over and over until the cloud started lifting a bit. I also had my dogs who needed to be fed and cared for, and that alone made me get up and function, at least minimally. Then I decided to move, and that kept me busy and occupied for a while, and then I went back to work and that helped, too. It was one step at a time, and after about 2 1/2 years, I realized I finally felt happy again. It's all just so sad and bewildering...
